Church Musicians
Reflections on Their Call, Craft, History, and Challenges

Product Number: 90-60

Composer: Westermeyer, Paul



The work of the church musician has always been challenging. In today's climate, there is a need to find new and effective ways to clearly articulate this calling to clergy, congregations, and choir members. This book of lectures examines their work and craft from a historical perspective through current practices. Paul Westermeyer's position as clergyman, musician, historian, and musicologist makes him uniquely qualified to give the reader a bird's eye view of the church musicians' vocation with all of its challenges and joys.

Paul Westermeyer is a musician, pastor, historian, musicologist, and theologian, and perhaps it is this range of vocations that enables him to bring such insight to the practice of a single vocation that is itself so tremendously varied. Whether he is reminding musicians and pastors of what they already might know…or asserting a more revolutionary point, his work provides clarity and centering for the vocation of church music.
-Douglas Brown, Union Presbyterian Seminary, Interpretation: A Journal of Bible and Theology, Jan. 2017
